We are pleased to continue our summer interns spotlight series so we can learn about our interns’ background and professional interests. This week we welcome interns Brionne Thompson, Markicia Horton and Samantha Love!
Brionne is a law intern at Intact and is attending Texas Southern University. “As with any internship, I’m hoping to learn as much as I can. I’m interested in insurance law, so I want to know all I can about the industry,” she says. Brionne is originally from Houston, Texas but moved to Austin when she was 13 years old. “I like to tell people I’m from Houston and Austin, she says.
Brionne joined Intact because she felt that the role is aligned with her overall career goals. “When I got the opportunity to be a part of it, I didn’t hesitate!”
If Brionne had a chance to go anywhere in the world, she would go to Paris. “The romantic culture, food and art is breathtaking. I am completely obsessed!” The last book she read was House of Sky and Breath by Sarah J. Maas, and the last TV show she watched was Emily in Paris.
Markicia is also a law intern at Intact. She hopes to gain as much knowledge as possible about insurance litigation. She is looking forward to getting exposure to the company’s operations and the of impact of its legal operations. Markicia was born in Jackson, Mississippi and grew up in Beaumont, Texas. She is currently a student at Texas Southern University. “I love that Intact promotes doing the right thing for its customers. I believe that should be a fundamental part of all businesses. Also, Intact values its employees. I love that aspect as well,” she says.
If Markicia could go anywhere in this world, she would visit New Zealand and Australia. “I’ve always been fascinated with the beauty of both countries. One day, I hope to take a trip so that I can experience all they have to offer,” she says.
Samantha has joined our Underwriting department and looks forward to gaining professional experience and to further her financial and analytical skills. Originally from Farmington Hills, Michigan, she is currently attending the University of Kentucky. “I’m interested in the wide range of industries that Intact supports and I desire to learn more about the unique and specialized services offered!” she says.
If Samantha could go anywhere in the world, she would visit Athens, Greece. The last TV show she watched was One Tree Hill.
Best of luck Brionne, Markicia and Samantha! We look forward to working with you and being a part of your career development.
